Yashwant Singh of the BJP represents the Nagina Lok Sabha seat, one of the 80 parliamentary constituencies in Uttar Pradesh.

The parliamentary constituency of Nagina was created in 2008 under the recommendation of the Delimitation Commission and has witnessed two Lok Sabha elections since then. The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Yashwant Singh defeated the then sitting MP and Samajwadi Party leader Yashvir Singh in the last general election.

Yashwant Singh has been fielded again by the BJP against Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party-Rashtriya Lok Dal alliance candidate Girish Chandra Jatav of the BSP and Congress’ Omwati Devi Jatav from the seat reserved for members of Scheduled Castes.
